Go, go, go, go, go, goVast amounts of encouragement to you to begin!

Go, shortyInvest yourself into this party, young lady

It’s your birthdayParty as if you were celebrating your birthday

We gon’ party like it’s your birthdayYour friends will join you in this boundless celebration

We gon’ sip Bacardi like it’s your birthdayWe highly recommend sharing a bottle of Bacardi, a Bermudan rum, as one does on his/her birthday

And you know we don’t give a fuck it’s not your birthday!Surprise! This is simply an excuse to purchase a bottle of rum and partake in some rowdy festivities! We were completely aware, at all times, that it is not, in fact, your birthday

Chorus

You can find me in the club, bottle full of bubShould you need to know of my whereabouts, I will be in the nearest clubbing establishment. I will ensure that I always have a fresh bottle of champagne

Look, mami, I got the X, if you into takin’ drugsSee here, pretty lady, I have in my possession some Ecstasy, if this is one of your interests

I’m into havin’ sex, I ain’t into makin’ loveBeing completely honest, I am simply looking for carnal sexual intercourse, nothing more. I am not, at this time, emotionally available

So come give me a hug, if you into getting rubbedContinuing with the honesty, there is a good chance that I will touch you in your special place should you come close enough

(repeat)

Verse 1

When I pull out up front, you see the Benz on dubsWhen I arrive [at any destination], your eyes will behold my Mercedes Benz automobile exhibiting 22-inch rims

When I roll 20 deep, it’s 20 knives in the clubWhen 20 of my friends are with me, you can be sure that each of them are carrying a knife

Niggas heard I fuck with Dre, now they wanna show me loveIt seems like the only affection and praise I receive from my listeners only happened after I collaborated with Dr. Dre, my mentor

When you sell like Eminem, and the hoes they wanna fuckIt pays to be popular! Take Eminem for example: when you’re as popular as he is, women of ill repute actively seek to have sex with you

But, homie, ain’t nothing change, hoes down, G’s upMy friend, I can say for certain that nothing changes, loose women come and go, as do your friends

I see Xzibit in the Cut, that nigga roll that weed upI occasionally see fellow rapper Xzibit in popular hangouts. He frequently smokes marijuana

If you watch how I move, you’ll mistake me for a playa or pimpBy simply looking at me, you might think that I am a well-sexed man, possibly one who works with prostitutes

Been hit wit’ a few shells, but I don’t walk wit’ a limp (I’m ‘ight)I have been shot several times [9 to be exact] but I have healed completely and have no problems walking normally (Indeed, I am fine)

In the hood, in L.A., they saying “50 you hot”When I hang out in the ghetto of Los Angeles, California, many people remind me of my successes

They like me, I want them to love me like they love PacI am confident that they enjoy my work, but I am eager for them to cherish me as they do the legendary Tupac Shakur

But holla, in New York them niggas’ll tell ya I’m locoHere’s the strange thing, when I travel to New York City, the black people there spread rumors that I suffer from a mental illness

And the plan is to put the rap game in a chokeholdThey think that my intent is to suffocate the rest of the rap community

I’m full of focused man, my money on my mindI must insist that I am completely focused on my work. The money I’ve made thus far isn’t nearly enough

I got a mill out the deal and I’m still on the grindMy record deal netted me $1 million, but I’m still working as hard as ever

Now shorty said she feeling my style, she feeling my flowI must mention that a young lady mentioned that the really enjoys my personality and the overall atmosphere I exude

Her girlfriend wanna get bi and they ready to goHer friend mentioned interest in a bisexual encounter and they’re both very eager to participate!

Verse 2

My flow, my show brought me the doeLet’s get this straight: it was my skills and energetic live performance that enabled me to make this much money

That bought me all my fancy things It also placed me in a position where I could purchase many high-class items

My crib, my cars, my clothes, my jewelsThese things include my spacious house, th automobiles I drive, the clothes I wear, and the ostentatious jewelery I possess

Look, nigga, I done came up and I ain’t changeSee here, sir/ma’am, I might have become successful, but I must insist that I’m still the same person that I was before

And you should love it, way more then you hate itYou should be happy for me and my successes, much happier than angry about it

Nigga, you mad? I thought that you’d be happy I made itSir/ma’am, are you upset about my success? I distinctly recall thinking that you might celebrate with me

I’m that cat by the bar toasting to the good lifeI am just a friendly guy, raising my glass in a neighborly manner, being optimistic about life

You that faggot ass nigga trying to pull me back right?You seem to be jealous and disappointed that I made it. You are trying to demonstrate your contempt with your attitude

When my jaws get to bumpin’ in the club it’s onOnce I take the stage and begin my show, you must be aware that this is my way of making evident my lack of concern for your thoughts

I wink my eye at you, bitch, if she smiles she goneFrom the stage, I make eye contact with a she-devil, and wink at her. If she likes what she sees, my job is complete

If the roof on fire, let the motherfucker burnMetaphorically speaking, should the roof catch fire during my set, pay it no attention

If you talking ’bout money, homie, I ain’t concernedLikewise, if you come to me complaining about your financial troubles, know that I will ignore you

I’m a tell you what Banks told me “cuz go ‘head switch the style upIf you don’t like the direction my music is taking, let me paraphrase Lloyd Banks, “Change your musical style how and when you want.

If the niggas hate then let ‘em hate and watch the money pile up”If people don’t like it, just ignore them. You will still make vast amounts of money.”

Or we go upside they head wit’ a bottle of bubOr, as I like to joke, we can violently strike the naysayers in their skulls with a bottle of champagne!

They know where we fuckin’ beYes, if we did such a thing, they would know that we did it

Outro

Don’t try to act like you ain’t know where we been either, nigga,I highly recommend that you don’t pretend that you have never heard of us

In the club all the time, nigga, it’s about to pop off, niggaI frequent clubs nationwide, and we are just getting started (musically speaking)

G-UnitThe “we” I am referring to, of course, is my group of fellow rap artists known as “G-Unit”
